018:029:001
Moreover Job continued his parable,
and said,


018:029:002
Oh that I were as in months past,
as in the days when God preserved me;


018:029:003
When his candle shined upon my head,
and when by his light I walked through darkness;


018:029:004
As I was in the days of my youth,
when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle;


018:029:005
When the Almighty was yet with me,
when my children were about me;


018:029:006
When I washed my steps with butter,
and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;


018:029:007
When I went out to the gate through the city,
when I prepared my seat in the street!


018:029:008
The young men saw me,
and hid themselves:
and the aged arose,
and stood up.


018:029:009
The princes refrained talking,
and laid their hand on their mouth.


018:029:010
The nobles held their peace,
and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.


018:029:011
When the ear heard me,
then it blessed me;
and when the eye saw me,
it gave witness to me:


018:029:012
Because I delivered the poor that cried,
and the fatherless,
and him that had none to help him.


018:029:013
The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me:
and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.


018:029:014
I put on righteousness,
and it clothed me:
my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.


018:029:015
I was eyes to the blind,
and feet was I to the lame.


018:029:016
I was a father to the poor:
and the cause which I knew not I searched out.


018:029:017
And I brake the jaws of the wicked,
and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.


018:029:018
Then I said,
I shall die in my nest,
and I shall multiply my days as the sand.


018:029:019
My root was spread out by the waters,
and the dew lay all night upon my branch.


018:029:020
My glory was fresh in me,
and my bow was renewed in my hand.


018:029:021
Unto me men gave ear,
and waited,
and kept silence at my counsel.


018:029:022
After my words they spake not again;
and my speech dropped upon them.


018:029:023
And they waited for me as for the rain;
and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.


018:029:024
If I laughed on them,
they believed it not;
and the light of my countenance they cast not down.


018:029:025
I chose out their way,
and sat chief,
and dwelt as a king in the army,
as one that comforteth the mourners.
